UPDATE: This Contest is now over. Congrats to Stacy Thibert for winning Season 1 of The Strain!
When you think of a fun and spirited Christmas Giveaway, you think of the gory Vampire vs. CDC vs. The World creep show that is THE STRAIN!!! Amirite??? You are, you so are!
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has provided Geek Girl Authority with Season 1 of The Strain. The horror series executive-produced by scare-genius Guillermo del Torro aired this past summer with 13 episodes to much success. Don’t you remember that super creepy eyeball poster that was EVERYWHERE! The Strain also landed on our Best Sci Fi Quotes and Fantasy Quotes of the Week numerous times. My favorite quote was:
Jim: This thing just shot a six foot python out of it’s mouth, its dick is gone, it just squirted a shitload of shit all over the table and you got your hands everywhere. What the hell is going on?
So, were you a fan of the show? Now you can own it! Did you miss the whole season of The Strain? Now you can own it. Do you like free stuff? Now you can own it!!! Here are some details about the show and some of the super cool extras that come with the Season 1 release:
Experience the first season of TV’s hottest, most blood-curdling sci-fi series – from Executive Producers-Writers Guillermo Del Toro, Carlton Cuse and Chuck Hogan – along with behind-the-scenes special features that explore the story’s journey from bestselling novel to hit show. When a freak virus kills all but four passengers on an airplane at JFK, Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll), head of the Center for Disease Control’s “Canary Team,” is immediately called to the scene. With help from a mysterious Holocaust survivor (David Bradley), “Eph” and his colleague (Mía Maestro) uncover the outbreak’s ties to vampirism. Now, the only way to stop the terrifying disease from wiping out mankind is to face its source – a sinister supernatural creature known as “The Master” – whose evil intent seems more powerful than any other force on Earth!
